Cruising Iceland: Westman Islands to Westfjords

From £2935 for 8 days
Trip Overview
Iceland is a land of physical extremes, from towering rocky cliffs and glacier-tipped volcanoes to sweeping tundras and Viking haunts. On this cruise you will see it all, from the popular Westman Islands to the remote and relatively untouched Westfjords. Wonder at thundering waterfalls of Reykholt, climb the dizzyingly steep Latrabjarg cliffs and encounter history both ancient and contemporary.

Trip Highlights

•   Only a fraction of visitors to Iceland make it across to the far-flung west, and the lack of tourists make its landscapes and villages a dream to explore

•   Learn about the devastating effects of a volcano eruption which rocked the Westman Islands in 1973, leaving large swaths of town buried beneath ash and lava and earning the moniker “Pompeii of the North”

•   Visit the home of influential Icelandic scholar Snorri Sturluson and see the landscapes that inspired his epic poetry

Where you'll be staying

Panorama

The Panorama offers the highest standard of accommodation, comfort and safety – perfect for your adventure in remote Iceland. Rebuilt in 2001 and renovated in 2014, this three-masted, state-of-the-art Motor Sailer can reach a cruising speed of 11 knots and accommodate up to 49 guests.  A smaller group size means you get a more personal level of service. We believe great food is an essential part of a holiday, so the onboard menu reflects your destination. As a smaller ship, we provide a greener way to travel; the Panorama generates less waste and has a smaller footprint. We’re also able to dock in smaller ports and drop anchor wherever we want, taking you to the heart of the destination.

Itinerary & Notes
Why not spend the morning getting acquainted with Iceland’s capital before boarding the Panorama in the late afternoon. Savour the view of modern buildings against immense mountains as you set sail before enjoying a welcome dinner on the ship. Perhaps enjoy a post meal Brennivin (a local savoury schnapps) before bed, and get some rest during the overnight trip to your first destination.
